Test Drive: Alfa Romeo Giulietta

To the Italians is simple: when you know you have a knife to the bone and need an excellent car that make them to rebound, they are more likely to produce a really interesting pattern. Is the case of Alfa Romeo Giulietta . who drew strength from the history of Alfa Romeo #8216;s sporty appeal that 147 compact segment has excelled, but which has already withdrawn some time.

After all, why Giulietta need to succeed in a market segment more populous than ever? For comfort, superior dynamics, strong engine and a decent price. Well, mostly Italians managed to tick all these requirements.

And develop a model which, besides looking good, dynamic capabilities are envied.

I admit: I started the Alfa Romeo Giulietta test drive with the impression that it#8217;s just a little more dynamic version of the Fiat Bravo . But it got some serious gineers who developed a completely different car in terms of behavior. And the change is evidently in good.

Engine / Transmission

For the test in Italy we had two engines, both gasoline: 1.4 Multiair 170 HP and the new 1750 TBI 235 HP . top of the range of the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta and best segment to report engine torque/litres. For diesel lovers, Alfa Romeo will have to start a new career market model and two diesel units, a 1.6 105 hp and a 2.0 Multijet of 170 hp . For more details about the 170 hp version, we expect an internal test at the launch in July.

TBI engine ( Gasoline Turbo Direct Injection ) 1750 cc was presented to us before the test as a top engineering achievement. And what did the Italians: the power/liter ratio is the best in Alfa Romeo history, while the ratio torque/liter is the best in the entire compact segment. Starting from these premises, I had the opportunity to test the dynamic capabilities of the engine due to extreme conditions, at the test circuit at Balocco Fiat Group, with the top trim levels, Quadrifoglio Verde.

Transmission coupled to the engine test, a manual six reports . managed to raise the performance level of the petrol unit tested. Basically, Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1750 TBI was a real sport in the Dynamic mode selector. with MiTo . an aspect of the Alpha series equipment. I know, not saying anything new when I say that an Alfa Romeo can be a sports car . But all chassis, suspension, steering, engine manages to reconcile both customers leaning toward dynamism, and those who want a good car to run it daily.

I was impressed by the ability to accelerate the petrol unit visible at 130-140 km/h (80-90 mph) in sixth gear. I liked that the third and fourth gears are absolutely explosive, keeping engine combined with an average speed to overcome relegation letting you get used to feeling his fist in the column that I get in those moments. Very helpful in running was also the emergence of turbo and power indicators on the monitor located in the central-posterior fascia.

Here you see how much percent of power use in each moment and that is real time pressure turbine. Not to lose as any drop of gasoline in the tank without use of the capabilities.

About the noise level, Alfa Romeo engine manages to raise the level of sports car itself being intrusive enough to rev high enough to leave you feeling like you#8217;re in an eye-catching car on the street. This is not a raw sound, but one attractive and designed for a machine that can successfully combine comfort and dynamism. The good news: although I had a very good engine in the test drive there is enough room to try any GTA version for the Alfa Romeo Giulietta . And it will probably come a bit later in the range.
